Protection against the forced return of war refugees : an interdisciplinary consensus on humanitarian non-refoulement
Refuge from inhumanity ? : war refugees and international humanitarian law
Leiden ; Boston : Brill Nijhoff, 2014
In this chapter, Jennifer Moore argues for scholarly and practitioner consensus around the norm of protection against forced return for 'war refugees' — a humanitarian form of non-refoulement extending to all individuals displaced by armed conflict, regardless of whether they meet the persecution-based definition of a refugee set forth in the Refugee Convention. Moore shows how both IRL and IHL are essential in defining the scope and application of the norm. She argues that, in addition to its importance in the context of IRL and IHL, humanitarian non-refoulement has broader relevance to the promotion of international peace and security, implementation of the Responsibility to Protect, and progress towards the Millennium Development Goals.
